Piney Woods Christmas Doily, Part Three

The third round is worked with a size 7 tatting needle and Valdani size 8 pearl cotton in M26.

This is a simple round to tat as it is all chain work.  Thread needle and run it through the top bar of the 3rd ds to the left of any previously tatted floating ring and CH 11 followed by 5 graduated picots (sm, med, lg, med, sm) 11 CL + to top bar of 3rd ds to the right of the floating ring.  Next you will CH 7 - 7 CL + to the top bar of the 3rd ds to the left of the next floating ring.  Continue with these counts around the doily.  After tatting the last CH, run needle through the base of the first CH tatted and pull threads to back of work.  Tie & cut, hide ends. 

I have good news- I found the image of the complete second round.  It was just labeled differently and I did not look in the right place yesterday.  Here it is:

Stay tuned tomorrow for round four!

I am busy baking a huge ham today and tatting a few little last minute motifs for gift toppers.  Guess I had better get back to it.  Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!


  1. That is so pretty! Size 8 thread seems so big as I seldom use anything bigger then 10. But it works so well in your design! Happy Holidays!

  2. Sorry I have not been around recently, your motif looks beautiful and lovely christmas colours.
